school Each department has its own instructor and class lengths are 3 hours (two periods) with students choosing to attend either a morning or afternoon session. Classes require the student to be in an LISD high school (although there are certain classes that require you to have attained 10th or 11th grade), and are offered through senior year.
The center was named for Dr. Robert Dale Jackson, Lewisville's first doctor. Dr. Jackson began as a pediatrician in the 1960s. As his patients aged, he later opened his office to serve as a family practice, serving his original patients, their children and later their grandchildren. Dr. Jackson was a widely loved man who served his local community for more than 40 years until his death in April 2001. He served as the local high school's team doctor and as school board president for several years.
